This was an adorable story of two souls who really needed each other.

Josh Faraday is a writer who writes for the paper under a fake name with a picture of him with just his hair showing over the top of a newspaper. He coaches t-ball to kids, and generally we think he is a good guy with a chip on his shoulder. Why? Well, it seems a young lady is getting more page time and even her own show before he gets all his dreams. So he sets out to expose her as a fraud by posing as a report doing an article on her.

Tess Banyon has landed the gig of a lifetime with her own show … think Martha Stewart. While she is good at ideas, pulling them together is not her forte. She relies on her sister and mother to help pull the details together. So while she is portrayed as the domestic guru, in reality, she relies on a team to help her bring her ideas to fruition.

Throw in that Tess’s family is playing matchmaker between these two, you begin to wonder if Josh will fall for Tess before he has to expose her. Will he expose her story, which really isn’t that bad, or will he realize her dreams are just as good as his own? Both have secrets that they would rather not have exposed.

The attraction happens almost instantaneously, but the development beyond physical took a little longer. I loved watching the relationship and closeness she has with her mother and sister. You really see the love this family has for each  other.

This is a light read that you can get done quickly. I recommend it to anyone who might need a break from the drama filled books and share a love story that is bright with hope for the future.
